I've no idea where this question came from. I answered it on https://eelkat.wordpress.com/ 

FAQs: Are old AD&D adventures still any use to current players? And what do you think of the new D&D 5ed?

Posted on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 

I did not leave a link to the question asker, so they must not have proved one.

Anyways, the past few weeks, I keep getting emails from my old WordPress followers asking when my WordPress blog will go back online.

The answer is I am moving my articles off of WordPress and reposting them here, so look for them here instead.

This is one of those article.

Here is the original question, my answer follows.

ARE OLD AD&D ADVENTURES STILL ANY USE TO CURRENT PLAYERS? I HAVE COME ACROSS A LOT OF OLD AD&D ADVENTURES FROM BACK IN THE DAY AND I WAS WONDERING IF IT WOULD BE ANY GOOD TO HAVE THEM PUBLISHED IN *NAME OF MAGAZINE REMOVED* FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY.THEY ARE MOSTLY HOME WRITTEN ADVENTURES FROM EITHER FRIENDS OR PEOPLE I KNOW. NOT COMMERCIAL ADVENTURES. DO PEOPLE STILL USE AD&D? AND WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NEW D&D 5ED? HAVE YOU TRIED IT YET? I’VE BEEN RUNNING THROUGH THE PLAYTEST MATERIALS AND I MUST SAY, HUZZAH! A RETURN TO THE POWERFUL SPELLS OF YORE AND DIVERSITY IN THE CLASSES. I’M PARTICULARLY EXCITED ABOUT THE CLASS, RACE, BACKGROUND, THEME, STUFF. IT SEEMS LIKE A PRETTY BRILLIANT WAY TO GET A LOT OF DIVERSITY BETWEEN CHARACTERS WITHOUT BOGGING IT DOWN IN A THOUSAND DIFFICULT TO CHOOSE OPTIONS THAT MAY NOT MAKE SENSE TO A FIRST TIME PLAYER. COULD THIS BE THE PERFECT BLEND OF 3.5 AND 4TH? DO YOU THINK WE’LL BE ABLE TO USE AD&D ADVENTURES WITH THE NEW RULES?

Wow... they wrote it in all caps!? Yie! Is that hard to read or what?
